Bitten by a dog, taken 5 AntiRabies shots & Tetanus injection with antibiotics. Is it a long term problem ?

Dear Doctor, I was bitten by a dog over a month ago above the left ankle.I had taken 5 AntiRabies shots & A Tetanus injection , besides a 5 day Amoxy+ Clavulanic acid course. The Wounds have healed though not the mental ones. What I am concerned about is the pain even after a month , though not severe or incapicitating. Is there a long term problem

good evening. I don't think you should worry too much about the pain. it will go off soon. it shouldn't be a long term problem either. just try to divert ur mind. you have taken the full treatment as well, so you should be fine. do let me know if it persists
